More from the “glycemic index is just a number” people . . .

Anyone following the rather entertaining exchange at SixServings.org, the {former} blog for the Grain Foods Foundation, would have seen the recent “withering” criticisms of Wheat Belly posted there.

So, in case they censor the comment I left (since they have been selective in what they have allowed through, in effect censoring), here is what I left:

Where to start?

There is no longer any remaining question: Low-carb compared to low-fat outperforms in weight loss comparisons. While there has been variation from study to study, in total, the literature has continued to demonstrate the weight loss superiority of a carbohydrate-restricted approach. Low-fat diets are also plagued by such metabolic derangements as increased expression of small LDL, increased blood glucose and HbA1c, lower HDL, and higher triglycerides, all potentially unhealthy and atherogenic (heart disease-causing).

Wheat Belly, by the way, is not a diet: it is an articulation of what geneticists and agribusiness have done to this plant called wheat, now a far genetic distance removed from the wheat of 50 years ago, mostly in the name of increased yield.

As usual, the “healthy whole grain” argument hides behind the clinical trials that compare white processed flour products with whole grains–there is, no question, a relative benefit. But it’s not until you compare whole grains to NO grains that you see the real effect: marked weight loss, reductions in insulin resistance and high blood sugars, etc. all the incredible effects that I witness every day. And there are indeed clinical trials validating these observations.

By the way, of the 16 pages of references listed in the back of Wheat Belly, only a minor handful are animal studies. The overwhelming majority of studies cited are human studies. After all, I take care of humans, not rats. How many humans do you take care of?

I am the first to tell you that wheat has NOT been genetically-modified; it has been the recipient of techniques that are far WORSE–cruder, less controlled, often bizarre. It is silly to hide behind the non-GMO argument in a world in which we have creations like Clearfield herbicide-resistant wheat generated via chemical mutagenesis, i.e., chemically-induced mutations.

But what makes me laugh the most of all is that, until you had us wheat-dissenters, your blog was essentially unread by the public!
